Articles of Association and 2021 AGM

On 9 October 2020, Gemfields announced that it had completed an external review of its Articles of
Incorporation (the “Articles”). The assessment included a general review of AIM and JSE practices, Guernsey
law (where Gemfields is registered) and the governance benchmarks set by a peer group of other, including
large diversified, mining companies. The intention was to better align Gemfields with appropriate market
practice and further improve the corporate governance framework.

Inter alia, the proposed amendments to the Articles lower the shareholder voting threshold for the appointment
and removal of directors from 75% to 50%.

A copy of the proposed amendments to the Articles is available for viewing on the Company’s website at the
link below:

In its announcement on 9 October 2020, Gemfields invited feedback and commentary on the proposed
amendments to the Articles by 17:00 UK time on Friday 11 December 2020.

Gemfields advises that: (i) no further comments have been received and (ii) the proposed amendments to the
Articles will therefore be put forward for shareholder approval at the Company’s next AGM, which is expected
to take place on 24 June 2021.
